Cons: After 9 uses, stopped working. Purchased less than 2 months before dying. Powers on but no functions. Was running as solo component. Only had a USB drive connected and speakers. Tried all other functions but nothing works. WARRANTY IS A JOKE! They will not give you a pre-paid RMA. You have to pay to ship it to them and include a money order or check for another $29.95 for them to send it back. So if it's even considered covered by the warranty, it costs you almost as much to get back a unit that has been broken and basically refurbished. You may as well buy a new one if you are set on having this particular item. The price is undoubtedly appealing. But you don't even get what you pay for. If you have the means, I'd suggest going with a different item and probably a different manufacturer.
Other Thoughts: I didn't want to spend much since the unit would be used in a shop. But even at the low cost it was a huge waste.

Pros: More than enough HDMI ports. Sounded great when the HDMI ports were working.
Cons: HDMI did not work properly. Networking did not work at all. I thought maybe a firmware update might help the HDMI issue, but the update requires the unit to be in network mode. When the unit was switched to network mode, there was a "pls wait" message displayed. I waited, and waited, and waited. Nothing. The unit was not recognized on my home network. I tried different cables and different router ports, still nothing. I had to go back to my old Sony that needs servicing, but at least it's HDMI ports work properly.
Other Thoughts: I bought it for the extra HDMI ports and the networking, too bad those were the problems with the unit.

Pros: ease of use, connectivity with other devices, integration with other sony products.
Cons: can't think of any.
Other Thoughts: I used to be a jvc electronics guy until they stopped making home component receivers. switched to sony and have not regretted the decision. This receiver puts the icing on the cake. i have an iphone connected through bluetooth and it works like a champ. I am able to access my mp3 library on my home network through the wifi without any problems. I have an all sony setup and the ease of use is awesome. I have read many negative reviews on this receiver, but honestly, most issues related to a lack of IT and computer knowledge. this receiver flat out and by far exceeds all of my expectations.

Pros: The sound quality and features are excellent. Very easy to use, yet very adjustable. Too much for the common person to adjust everything, but simple enough with the easy auto settings.
Cons: When you turn it on (more than not) the screen has a purple tint to it. Usually turning it off and back on fixes this, but its EXTREMELY annoying. I run my sat box through it, and the pioneer to the tv.
Now it has gotten to the point where ive turned it off and back on over 20 times (No exaggerating) and its still showing a purple hue over the TV. Its not the TV as ive upgraded TVs since I bought the receiver and it does the same thing. I of course have now had the unit for a couple days over a year so im sure Pioneer wont care to do anything about it. This is a very common issue if you look online and there is no solution for it. Im about to take this $500 piece of (edited word) and throw it in a bonfire.
Now its to the point where 1. Im scared that turning it off and back on so many times is gonna damage it, and 2. Now its freezing up and becoming completely un-responive when it turns on. Purple video is still going to the tv, but no sound, so I have to move my huge entertainment center to get to my outlet, unplug it and plug it back in.
